    Great show this week. So terrible to hear about the Dispensary in Deep Cove getting all that aggravation. Wishing Ken Starr all the best. He has quite the story and seems to be in this industry for the right reasons. I got all tingly when you announced the NEW co host and played the video. Go Canucks Go!

    OK, I have to ask. Where does one find a bong costume like that? I might want one for a Halloween party.
